This Saturday at TASM!


Biplane and Her Boy

September 10, 2011

10am - 2pm


In conjunction with the special traveling exhibit, Our Lives, Our Stories: America’s Greatest Generation, the Tulsa Air and Space Museum & Planetarium will help make “Literature Come Alive” as we present author Mary Coleman-Woolslayer and her fascinating book, A Biplane and Her Boy on Saturday, September 10 from 10am – 2 pm. 


Mary will share the wonderful story of a biplane named Betty Lou and her boy who loved to fly!  Mary will provide hourly readings for children of all ages that promise to entertain and challenge them to learn more about history, airplanes and flight. 


Outside on the ramp, families will have the chance to learn more about vintage aircraft and even see a Stearman up-close and personal. Illustrator Kevin Stark will have some of his original artwork from the book on display at the event.  On the playground, Tulsa Children’s Museum will provide a fun hands-on Bubbles activity for this special day.

Inspirational Exhibit



Born in the 1910s and 1920s, America’s Greatest Generation was shaped by events and circumstances, from the prosperity of the Roaring 20s, to the Great Depression, to World War II.  They began with a sense of hope and optimism only to be knocked down by economic devastation and a surprise attack on U.S. territory.  Over two decades of strife and starvation hardened them for meeting head-on, the challenges of World War II.  Once they had survived and triumphed over the evils of the Second World War, they developed the most powerful nation on earth, landed men on the moon, and created and lived “The American Dream”. 


This inspirational exhibit draws on the stories and memories gathered together to help us understand not only who they were, but who we are through free-standing photomural exhibits and object cases; interactive materials, and freestanding immersive environments.  This exhibition was organized by the Minnesota History Center/Minnesota Historical Society, St. Paul, MN and brought to you by Mid-America Arts Alliance.  It has been made possible through NEH on the Road, a special initiative of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
